Anti-abortion activist David Daleiden has won an appeal in a federal court against a group of research lab employees from the University of Washington and abortion facility personnel who were seeking to have their names redacted from public documents about their work. The employees, who identified themselves legally as Jane and John Doe, sued Daleiden along with the University of Washington in August 2016, claiming they “would likely face threats, harassment, and violence” if the records about their work procuring, processing, and transferring organs and tissue of aborted human fetuses in connection with the school’s taxpayer-funded Birth Defects Research Laboratory were disclosed.

Conroe County Police Chief Philip Dupuis was asked to leave a doctor's office because of his gun. A Texas police chief said he was asked to leave a doctor’s office because he was carrying his gun. Conroe Police Chief Philip Dupuis told The Courier he was wearing his badge, lanyard with identification and gun when he began to check in for his appointment at Texas Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists in The Woodlands on August 8. The receptionist reportedly took the officer’s information, then asked him to put his gun in his car. Dupuis said he refused, and was asked to leave. 'It's just bad,' Dupuis told The Courier. 'My badge is clearly displayed. I have my lanyard on with 'police' on my ID card hanging around my neck. I had handcuffs. The lobby was full of people, and they asked me to leave because of who I am.' The Woodlands is my former home town.

Parker Frederickson of Kokomo, IN made the tow to Charleston, IL to be rewarded with his first career feature win.

The popular young driver received the checker flag and trophy to a standing ovation from the approving crowd. The Mopar powered Maxim chassis worked to perfection to erase what had to this point been a challenging season. By Dudley Balmer 8/12

“I did get the lead (on lap 10), but the yellow came out,I knew Mark would be good in open track. I was just going to run behind him until we hit traffic and run the bottom. I was lucky I got back by Brian. I made the mistake of running down the track, but the top was the fastest way around. I’m in a zone right now. Little holes look big. Like Kyle Larson said, I’ve never driven a sprint car this good. Hopefully, Saturday, we can duke it out. I’m happy to be in the books. Hopefully, we have something for them Saturday.” David Gravel in Knoxville Raceway Victory Lane Thursday night with a perfect 500 score.

“I definitely have to have the conversation with him, that’s for sure!” said Kyle Larson in Knoxville Raceway Victory Lane as the crowd roared, in reference to his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series owner, Chip Ganassi, and his ability to make it back from practice in Michigan for Saturday’s championship in Knoxville. “I’ve never been this good in a sprint car in my career. To win a prelim night here with Paul Silva is amazing. Our car was really good the whole feature. We were a little loose on the bottom, and I felt we moved up at the right time. I’m super-happy to win! I’m nervous about the phone call. Hopefully, (Chip) is listening and knows how much I appreciate everything he allows me to do racing sprint cars. If we can race Saturday night, that will be a dream come true. To win here Saturday…I feel like we have a great shot. In the Cup stuff, those are the best group of guys to work with. I feel like we have a great shot (at a championship). I feel fast, and I’m having fun. It would be a lot of fun to get done practicing Saturday and know I’m racing here.”
